EPA to Issue WOTUS Rule today

The federal EPA is expected to announce the final rule governing what water will be covered by its rules. Known as the Waters of the United States.. or WOTUS rule, EPA potentially will assert control over low spots, drainage ditches etc greatly expanding its authority over activities in all kinds of industries.

The Hill and many others have articles out today about the expected release of the WOTUS rule.

This proposed rule has already gained a lot of opposition in Congress but they have failed to stop it from proceeding. It is expected that the rule will draw a number of law suits soon after it has been finalized and is likely to end up in the supreme court. Once the final rule is issued I will post put a link in this article. HERE IS THE LINK it is 297 pages.
